A bumper crop of giant pumpkins impressed record numbers of visitors at Bungay's Halloween pumpkin festival on Saturday.
About 6,000 people flocked to Bridge Street, where 150 carved pumpkins adorned the paths and windows as part of the town's annual pumpkin night.
Deirdre Shepherd, chairman of the Bungay Feasts and Festivals committee, said: "It was a fantastic event and even the weather was perfect as it was a bit misty."
As well as carved pumpkin lanterns, revellers enjoyed other spooky goings-on including a medieval-style sin-eater, a palm reader and a special visit from an incarnation of the legendary Black Dog apparition.
